Open Access Quantum Journals

A list of Open Access Quantum journals for you to publish your manuscript in

Quantum is minimum amount of any physical entity involved in an interaction

A journal article is 'open access' when there are no financial, legal or technical barriers to accessing it - that is to say when anyone can read, download, distribute, print, and search it.

Hopefully this list of Quantum Open Access journals will make it easier for you to decide where to publish your Quantum manuscript.
We made this list which includes all the high-impact factor Quantum journals that might be relevant to your field of study.Instead of displaying the most commonly known Quantum journals, we have made an exhaustive list of open accesss Quantum journals. Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Quantum venue for your manuscript.

The DOAJ columns refers to the The Directory of Open Access Journals, a list of open access journals, maintained by Infrastructure Services for Open Access.
There are certain criteria a journal must meet to be indexed by DOAJ, and thus inclusion in the DOAJ index is seen by scholars as a mark of quality.

All the open access Quantum journals in this list are indexed in

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open Access aims to provide immediate and unrestricted access to research articles while along you to also share it freely
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
It refers to the strength of association between this journal being listed and the concept, from 0-100. For example, the Journal Of Research In Mechanical Engineering has a relevance of “0” when listed under “Open Access Computer Science Journals” because it has no relevance to the field of Computer Science.
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations show how often articles from a journal have been referenced in other works. We get this data from OpenAlex.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
To search for more open journal lists under different topics, look on
How can I publish my paper on
Our aim at is to disseminate existing open access research papers. For this reason, we do not publish any papers. What we do is that once a paper has been published, we index it in so that more people can find and access a journal article.
What is an APC?
An APC is the article processing charge that an author of a given research paper has to pay in order to get it published in a journal. APCs are most commonly used by open access journals or by journals who offer open access publishing.
What are the different Open Access types?
Depending on the license, a research paper might be categorised as a) Gold Open Access, b) Hybrid Open Access, c) Green Open Access, d) Bronze Open Access, e) Diamond Open Access, or f) Black Open Access
